Husky Liners Tailgate Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be doing an installation of the Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with the Locking Handle, part number HL15240. You can see the louvered tailgate once it's installed. Of course, we've got the drop down to allow for our use next to things like that to be connected without any problem. This is also going to give us an advantage in that this is about half the weight of a standard steel tailgate. It's also louvered. While we're dropping weight in the truck just like the new cars coming out, they don't have spare tires to help with fuel economy, losing weight is going to help us with our fuel economy, and this louvered design is going to allow air to pass through rather than be caught in there. It can really help to improve our fuel economy. This is a locking tailgate.

Let's go ahead and take a look at the gap in the middle here which is for fifth wheels or goose necks so you don't have to lower a tailgate to hitch up to your trailer.

WeatherTech BumpStep Hitch Mounted Bumper Step Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the WeatherTech bump step, part number WT81BS1. This hitch step installs into a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver as you can see here. With it installed, this is going to allow us to gain easy access into the bed of our truck. We have it installed on our SUV, you see that we can have it installed and gain access up to the roof of our vehicle, access anything on our roof rack that we may need to or any accessories that we may have installed. You can also see that with it installed in the hitch, it would also work on a front-mounted hitch. You could use this to help assist in working underneath the hood of your vehicle. Also, with it installed, it's going to act as a strong bumper guard.

This does have the round tubes going all the way across, another square tubing construction on the bottom. Take a closer look at the edge of the tailgate where it meets the bed and tail lights. You can see it has a gentle curve that actually matches the curve of the bed and tail lights. You can take a look. There's a little seam on the body work here.
